Tis the Season...

Hello all of you Jackson 3 blog followers! Sorry we haven't updated the blog in a while, it's not that we have been really busy, we are just kind of lazy. If Elliot is asleep we are just chilling out or asleep as well, and blogging definitely falls below picking up the house or any other chores that we have to do (OCD!!). However, I did want to catch everyone up on what has gone on the past couple of weeks.

The big news is that Elliot got her frenulum (piece of skin under her tongue) clipped on Friday. (for more answers on why we did this, please consult Jennie as I don't think she wants it broadcast over the web.) She recovered like a champ and by Friday afternoon she was going to town in her jumper (I think it was harder on Mom and Dad). Saturday, Jennie tried to venture out to the mall with Elliot while Dad worked. Not such a great idea as Elliot started running a fever while she was there. Saturday night the fever was still there so we took her to the Pediatric Urgent Care Center to make sure that her tongue wasn't infected. Tongue, no.... Ear, yes... So Elliot has her first ear infection under her belt! She was a little fussy on Sunday during Dad and Daughter football day, but not too bad considering minor surgery with an ear infection on top! Now, she is doing great!

We are headed to the frigid plains of the Texas Panhandle for Christmas. We are looking forward to seeing everyone. She always seems to do new things in Amarillo (holding off for the grandparents, I guess), so hopefully we can master rolling over (back to front) while we are there.

We want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and we will be sure to take lots of pictures.


Jordan, Jennie, and Elliot

Giggling Baby and Christmas Trees

I hope that everyone had a great Thanksgiving.  Mommy had to work, so Elliot and Daddy packed up and headed over to have Thanksgiving with our good friends Amy and Andrew and their family.  And, yes, we brought plenty of left overs home to Mom!

The rest of the weekend, we took it pretty easy.  We did motivate ourselves to decorate for Christmas though (we missed you Sammy Christmas, but you are always in our hearts!).  We made a bold decision to leave the fake tree in the attic and on Sunday we headed out to the forrest (aka Lowes) to find our Christmas tree.  Below are some pictures of the finished product!  Also, check out the video at the bottom of the blog.  We had to do the sneaky camera angle b/c she would get distracted when she saw the camera.
